Mexico’s Transportation Ministery Halts Commercial Trucking Services for 2 Months
Mexico’s transportation ministry has stopped issuing new permits, license plates and driver’s licenses for commercial truck operators until Dec. 31 because of a cyberattack in late October, creating possible delays for transporters. Permits that expire on these dates will be automatically extended until December 31, the agency added. Officials for Mexico’s trucking industry said SICT’s decision to delay issuing new permits and licenses could hurt the country’s domestic supply chain, as well as cross-border trade with the United States.
“In cross-border transportation services, the American authority has the power to request the driver’s license — not having the registration of the procedure and the current document, supposes a large number of drivers and trucks that would be losing all opportunity to operate,” according to a news release from Mexico’s National Chamber of Freight Transport (CANACAR).
